With over 4,000 members, we are the premier group to join for anyone interested in learning web and app development, finding employment and improving their skill sets to gain further momentum in the tech industry.

We have had well-known speakers at our meetups including Douglas Crockford, Chris Griffith, Leif Wells and Beau Carnes, and many more to come.  If you’re interested in attending a meetup in Southern California, you can join us in LA via the LA chapter, in LongBeach/OC via the OC chapter, or just subscribe to us on YouTube to follow us online and chat with us via Discord — we are an internationally recognized community!
